A little piece of the ~1000’ 3-lane track at Derby Downs in Akron,OH. That’s my great nephew driving his Soap Box Derby.

I don’t have a photo but if I did it would be of a sidewalk, not a road. ‘Pavement’ means something different here.

Interesting, floral, as here, most sidewalks are not paved but are concrete.

Annie, in my little corner of New England, older sidewalks are brick, downtown sidewalks are concrete and all others are pavement.

Uptowngal, I'm not such a fan. We had 25 of them hanging around our pond this spring and they have "fertilized" our lawn *everywhere*. It's a pound of poo per goose per day!! And they are so *noisy*. We still have 2 couples fighting territorial wars and they are honking all day and they are loud!

they tickle me.

That’s why it’s called a ‘goose’. 😳

Annie, most sidewalks here aren’t paved either, although they can be in old towns and cities. They're usually tarmac ( blacktop) like in roxsol’s picture of Westminster

Bridge. Concrete sidewalks are rare.


Canada Geese are not greatly loved here either. They're handsome birds but they produce prodigious amounts of s..t which destroys waterside parks and gardens. They also eat young cereal crops.

Fort Worth had wooden sidewalks when I was a child. I thought they were rather primitive at the time and did not like them, but then I did not like Ft Worth because my father would drag me with him there to go to the stockyards.

And York UK has a road called Pavement. I found that quite funny.

I remember my parents used to refer to our front yard and back yard as the garden. Not a single flower or veggie grew there. Interesting how it is the same language but different.

Thanks Uptown Gal. Anne I know what you mean, when my son was playing baseball

the fields were covered with goose poop.

I can sure see your point of view under your circumstances, Annie...that would change my mind in a hurry about them. We only get 2 or 3 at a time over our Green Space and they don't stay long.

Unlike the English London from which it got its name, our local London has two branches of a Thames River that meet near downtown, so we have developed several riverside parks.

When I was young, growing up near local London, some Canada Geese were seasonal residents, and some still are, but with recent global warming, which is happening much more rapidly in northern areas than generally in the world, many have chosen to live in and near our parks year-round, and have developed for themselves varying levels of reputation among many of the other two-legged users of the parks, many of whom, lacking wings, can't fly (except in winged, motorized cans).

Haven't heard of any efforts having been made to offer a system to encourage them to deposit no longer wanted excess body weight in small designated areas when their internal body communications system indicates a need, along the line of the outhouses that humans developed to meet such bodily needs in earlier generations. Quite likely due to the certainty of persons in charge that almost earth-shaking incentives would be required, mainly in terms of offering feed, which would substantially defeat the original purpose ... plus that goose communication systems would probably attract most geese within about 100 miles.

Here in SD beside the State Capitol there is a large manmade lake that is artesian fed. It is warm year round. So the geese stay here all winter. There are fish in there too. The mess they make on the sidewalk around the capitol is horrible.
